West Kirby is a coastal village offering windsurfing, sailing and canoeing on the Marine Lake and it boasts many restaurants, bars and bistros catering for all tastes. A great place to explore during the day and it takes on a totally different hue in the evenings when the place comes alive with the locals enjoying meals and drinks at the many bars and eateries.

"Exceptional base for exploring the Wirral and Liverpool"

This property had everything to make our stay complete .Not only was it cheaper than booking 3 hotel rooms in Liverpool for 3 nights, it was also a joy to come back to after full days out in the city. Quiet, very comfortable, 3 en-suite's and a place to relax together in the evening planning the next days activities. We actually ate in Friday and Saturday night, using the excellent dining facilities and kitchen [ meals we had pre-prepared and took with us]. The access to Liverpool was so easy, drove to nearby Moels Station, where car parking is free all day, purchasing a Return Ranger Ticket at £4.95 per person, which included passage over on the Famous Ferry across the Mersey. Port Sunlight was just 15 minutes away and well worth the visit too. Overall excellent location and a most welcoming host.

"Superb accommodation, centrally located on the Wirral peninsular"

Herons Well is an ideal place to stay for a walking weekend or short vacation, with every need catered for - very much home from home from the moment you arrive. The accommodation is spacious, warm and luxurious with under-floor heating plus a log-burning stove in the lounge that gives you the best of both worlds.
Its location on the beautiful Wirral peninsular is perfect: just a few minutes' drive from all the area's main attractions and only half an hour from Liverpool and Chester.
The owner, Glynis, is available the moment you arrive and gives you a comprehensive guided tour of the property. She lives with her husband on the working farm that adjoins Herons Well, which means she's always on-hand, but never intrusive.
We had a wonderful time at Herons Well and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

"Perfect self catering - luxurious AND friendly"

Originally from the Wirral, we stayed at Herons Well for a long weekend to celebrate my 70th birthday with family and friends. We ranged in age from 70 to aged five and everyone of us agreed that if we could design a home, this would be it! Beautifully laid out, spacious yet cosy, a really stunning design and immaculately fitted out. No detail has been overlooked. We didn't do much cooking, but everything you could possibly need was there. Glynis was very welcoming, and the complementary champagne (as well as tea, coffee and biscuits) was a lovely unexpected bonus. The children appreciated the books and toys, too. No one wanted to go home!

"Outstanding property, beautifully and thoughtfully finished throughout."

Herons Well has to be one of the best self catering properties I have ever stayed in. Now with the addition of luxurious beds it is perfect for our group of friends when we visit Hoylake. Glynis makes us all feel so welcome and she has put a lot of love and effort into making this a wonderful place to stay.

"Fantastic accommodation for a family"

Beautiful, comfortable place with everything a family could possibly need. Attention to detail is amazing. There is beautiful glassware to enjoy a wine while sitting on the lounge around the fireplace after a busy day out and even wonderful toys for the little ones to play with. Glynis was terrific from the first time I called to book to the moment we had to leave. We were there for a family wedding and had 3 generations staying and all loved it. Other family members attending the wedding dropped in and agreed it was terrific accommodation.
